Great outdoor views and THE BEST coconut shrimp on PCB

We live just a couple blocks away so this has become kind of a "go to" place for a quick walk for a beer and a bite. We prefer to sit at the little bar area that overlooks the marina and lagoon.

Marina Cantina used to be a great place to go for some unique menu items and an awesome tequila selection. That place no longer exists. Now it is just another seafood place with pretty much the same menu items as every other seafood restaurant in the area (only higher priced). They no longer offer the amazing tequila flights. The tequila... More

A friend and I wanted to have a drink together and went here, knowing they had an outdoor bar. The bar area is nice and the live music was good. They are suppose to have really great margaritas, so we ordered one. I was not even CLOSE to a good margarita. It was drinkable. We were not eating and I... More

We found this place online while on vacation and were very disappointed in the service and the appetizers/drinks, we left after waiting an hour for dinner to come so can't speak for that. I could tell upon arriving that it wast gonna be good but we stayed. Took a while for server to come to table. My sister ordered a... More

The food here was good enough, but we had a long wait. The drinks were average. But the view of the marina is great, and there's a shop on the bottom level that had some cute things - not the cheap kitschy stuff you usually see.

We went for dinner on Friday May 15, 2015 at 6:00. There were only one or two other families in the whole restaurant. We ordered guacamole and chips to start with and key lime margaritas. The margaritas were terrible, called the waiter over and he said that it's because of the kind of drink we ordered and that's why he... More

Not only was the place recently shut down by the health dept. due to "pests" but ever since the new owners reopened the place the food is now limited to overpriced seafood, overpriced drinks, and and an unfriendly wait staff. They honestly should have changed their name. There is nothing "mexican" about the place anymore aside from the tequila that... More

We went there with some locals and had a nice evening with great dinner! The catch of the day was a grouper (blackened) and it was awesome! It was definitely worth 20$! It's nice to sit outside with a great view of the harbour and enjoy the live music there! :)

The service and food was terrible! The guacamole and margaritas were good. My sister could not drink her Long Island tea. We had to ask for refills. They did not give us salsa and chips. We ordered chips and cheese dip as appetizers. There were 10 people in our party and only 2 people ate their food. We waited an... More
